Creating a Cozy Atmosphere in Your Home’s Winter Design
Updated: Sep 8
The holidays have left us but the chilly weather hasn’t quite yet. As we enter these winter months, we are thinking of how we can add cozier elements into the design of our home spaces to create experiences that bring a sense of warmth to both our families and our guests. Here are a few simple ways that you can create a cozy winter atmosphere that lasts past the holiday leftovers.
Adding in textile layers, such as swapping out accent pillows and throw blankets is a great way of cozying up your design. Switching these out every season is a great way of aligning your décor with the time of year. Adding in more layers during the colder winter months that is within reach of your guests can add warmth to your design palette.
Implementing textural décor elements is another great way of adding depth to your home winter design. Vintage décor, greenery, and natural materials can add warmth to wherever they are placed.
Lighting plays another big part in achieving your aesthetic. Instead of only utilizing your overhead lighting, consider switching it up with floor and table lamps to create a warm and inviting ambiance.
Seasonal candles can truly create the atmosphere that you are trying to achieve. Burning warm scents can truly set the mood for your design, especially when the evenings get colder. The right scent can truly transform the environment of your home. Picking scents such as palo santo, oakmoss, and bergamot will add warmth to your home.
